You having any issues with transmission shifting? Is the odometer still reading and working properly?

I have the same problem you have. The speedometer and odometer do not work at all and I'm also having issues with the transmission shifting wildly or sometimes sticking in one gear at high RPMs. Any ideas? Could all of these problems be related?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, my car is also a '97 SC2. And according to the guys at my local Tuffy Muffler, there were no codes on their diagnostic. Although that didn't stop them from charging me $39.99 for it anyway.
They just repaired the flex pipe on my exhaust and gave it an oil change and sent me on my way. Needless to say, there are definitely more things wrong with it than that! My 'SERVICE ENGINE SOON' light has been on since I bought the car.

If the check engine light is on you should have codes if you dont live in California you should be able to go to a auto parts store and have them check for codes?

The codes I got were P0500 and P0722. I'd greatly appreciate any advice you could give me to repair these problems myself. Thanks!
